with more extreme behavior like you saw, for example, in the confirmation hearing of chuck hagel would essentially tried to pillory him and turned into a terrorist supporter, just like the council and we heard from earlier, because he questioned the actions, but i think the harm that comes from suppressing the debate over israel and that comes from the steadfast line support for the israeli government by the u.s. has become so obvious, that more and more people are not openly questioning these issues. i think you see in the me a much greater tolerance for entertaining a wider range of yous. i think the internet and shows like yours have shown that by [indiscernible] just a few years ago, these ideas were considered taboo. i think things are headed in the right direction. i think those defending this is indicative of that. years ago it would have been very lonely but now it is much more mainstream position. >> thank you both for being with us, omar barghouti, one of the founding members of bds, non- violent campaign to boycott, divest, sanction israel until it complies with internationa

secretary of defense, chuck hagel, and i am confident and i've expressed that confidence publicly that the men and women of the department of defense will have the kind of advocate they need as the nation emerges from more than a decade of war. lastly, i'm honored to be here, as i said, as a catholic and as a proud graduate of another jesuit institution, santa clara university. my time in the university's undergraduate and law school, in many ways shaped the rest of my life as this education will shape the rest of your lives. i remain deeply thankful to the jesuits for the outstanding education that i received. having gone through seven years of philosophy and syllogisms and theology and cannon law, i have been blessed by all the grace and skepticism that jesuits can give. more importantly, i've been shaped by what i believe is their pragmatic approach to life and to faith and to the issues in general. it was that education and my catholic upbringing, particularly as the son of italian immigrants, that instilled in me the very core principles and values that i carry with me till t
